James Kottaras is a 2008 2B/3B with a 5'10'', 155 lb. frame from Markham, ON who attends Milliken Mills SS. He has a smaller frame, with square shoulders and some present strength. Kottaras is a polished player both offensively and defensively. His defense has improved since the last time we saw him and he showed very smooth actions at second base and made accurate, strong throws. He was under control in the games and made all the plays easily. Kottaras is a left handed hitter with a crisp, short swing that produces line drives to all fields. He's a very patient hitter who will work a count. Kottaras is one of those hitters who looks better and produces better when he's swinging hard and trying to hit the ball hard, rather than staying under control. He keeps his hands inside the ball well and his best contact is to the middle of the field. Kottaras is a 7.33 runner but has good quickness and efficient actions. He's a ball player who will max out his physical tools.
